Stuffing Your Stockings....with Back Pain?

It’s that magical time of year again. Families are pulling out the boxes of decorations to dress their trees in tinsel and ornaments and lights. Shopping is getting insane as last minute shoppers rush to get gifts for the ones they love. And stockings are being hung with care. It’s all part of the pageantry of the season, and it’s a stressful time with lots to remember and even more to fuss over. The stockings - that part in particular rings a bell with me lately. In the past few weeks, several people have come into my NYC office with severe lower back pain. The back pain was bad enough that patients were saying they ‘couldn’t even pull their socks up.’

That’s a heck of a holiday surprise: you get all in the spirit stuffing stockings and you can’t even pull up your own? Sounds like a bad joke waiting to happen. No one should have to suffer during one of the most joyous times of the year. And let’s face it, shopping this time of year in New York City is hard enough without having to struggle against back pain, too. Just seems unfair.

But there’s no need to panic just yet. Living Well Medical in NYC’s SoHo/NoHo area wants to help you make your season’s greetings full of joy and comfort - we have years of experience stopping back pain just for times like these.

One of the best parts about my practice is that we don’t limit ourselves to just one kind of treatment. People have different preferences and needs, so we provide a wide range of services all from the same place. Chiropractic care, spinal decompression therapy, Active Release Technique, massage therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy -We go beyond scratching the surface of what can be done to stop your pain. The most important point is to see someone. Don’t just let it go - that’s like giving yourself a lump of coal for Christmas. The sooner you get help, the sooner you can find relief.

What a great little blog post! It's well written, perfectly themed, clever, and a bit off-beat. Good luck with your business, doctor.
Very bad season for back pain, especially those of us who spend time digging through garages and lifting boxes full of decorations and hunched over putting together toys for children all day. Thanks for the insight
